  • CCNA Lab

    I currently have access to a Cisco 2610 Router, Cisco Catalyst 3750 switch.

    I would like to setup my own CCNA lab. Will this be enough? I do have access to a Cisco 2500 Router also.

    Thanks.

    I would use both routers. You can set them up in a "back-to-back" configuration and create 2 VLAN's on the switch and connect each VLAN to one of the routers. That way you can simulate actual routing between 2 different subnets.

      if possible get more switches so you van play with stp, vtp etc...
      I recommend (from personal experience) to get at least 3 switches and 3 routers.

        How can I connect the 2610 to the 2501 router? They both have serial connections. The 2610 has a WIC-2T card in it and a WIC 2A/S.

          If both serial interfaces support frame relay encapsulation then you can you can create a "back-to-back" frame relay connection between the two of them. You just have to turn off LMI and set one of them as the clock source. Below is a link to a Cisco page explaining how to set it up.
